Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Silverwalk serves Beagles, other hounds, senior and foster dogs in an open pack/home setting. In the past and looking to the future, we fostered for American Black and Tan Coonhound Rescue, National Great Pyrenees Rescue, the Humane Society of Southeast MO, and multiple private individuals.
Silverwalk is a small, home based hound sanctuary just north of Cape Girardeau, MO. All dogs live in a pack environment with 24/7 access to a dog door and over an acre well fenced of yards and field. At this time, all the dogs live in and out of doors with me.
All dogs are altered, up to date on vaccinations including rabies and bordetella. All have basic obedience started and are either house trained or in the process. All dogs are micro-chipped on intake.
Silverwalk specializes in Beagles, other hounds and senior dogs.
References from people who have adopted dogs from Silverwalk are available if needed - we have become good friends for the most part and keep in touch - I just enjoy dogs and helping people find that one dog who "will put the spark back in their eyes."
My first dog in MO was a Beagle mix named Oliver, and thus, a love of Beagles and hounds was born. Oliver has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but I have several other Beagles needing homes now.
I have a speech impediment, so initially, email is best - thank you!
References both personal (non-family) and vet, a home visit and a minimum adoption fee of $100 -200 will need to be completed and acceptable before adoption will take place.
These dogs are looking for long term loving homes. I want both the dogs and you, the adopter, to be happy for a very long time!
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
